Wayne to skip Colts' minicamp
Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne, who has two years left on his contract, will not attend Indianapolis' mandatory minicamp this weekend.
"I have tremendous respect for Jim Irsay, Bill Polian and the entire Indianapolis Colts organization, but at this time, we are in disagreement concerning my contract situation," Wayne said in an e-mailed statement. "Therefore, I will not be attending this weekend's minicamp.
"I will continue training diligently in Florida, as I have each offseason since my rookie year, to ensure that I am fully ready for this season," he wrote. "I hope that a fair resolution can be reached in the not-too-distant future that allows me to achieve my goal of playing my entire career with the Indianapolis Colts."
Wayne, 31, is scheduled to make $5.47 million this season and $5.95 million next season. He is coming off his fourth straight Pro Bowl season and has at least 100 catches in two of the past three seasons.
